N plate Rover 416 - welshy
I have purchased a Rover 416 BUT the car is loosing water now , when the car is revved I can see a shooting of water coming from just behind the exhaust manifold . I have been told its the head gasket gone , seems strange considering the car has only done 45,000 miles and there is no oil in with the water and vise versa . Any ideas or was the mechanic right ?

Because it was low mileage .

Sounds like your Mech is right,46k is too low a mileage,do the MOT certs verify the mileage.

Also what does the service history say,ie has it had regular services including coolant changes and brake fluid changes,at correct times-not mileage though-the coolant changes are most important on this car.

But HGF can occur at any time on these so nothing new

Do not drive this car any further, you may be able to save it in time. K Series HGF at this mileage doesn't come as any surprise.
I expect the water heated inlet manifold gaskets have gone, causing the leak.
